continuing a failed-infrastructure-matters thread, the effect of grid,
and point backup (diesel) failure is not limited to loss of transit,
for which non-local redundency exists, nor non-redundent service, for

critical, but extends to basic access to private data networks, which
are quality of life critical.

the link below is to a write-up on inability to access the "electronic
benefits card (ebt)" payment system in the absence of power to the

the data network overwhich the ebt pos edge devices and core settlement
system are distributed.


again, interest and milage may vary, naturally.
